If you want to check out some more awesome cosplay from this year's San Diego Comic-Con, we’ve got another cosplay music video for you to check out. This one comes from Aggressive Comix and there’s some pretty awesome cosplay featured in it. My favorite is the 1980s style He-Man group cosplay. There was a lot of great cosplay this year and it’s crazy that so many people braved the hellish heat of San Diego as they wore their costumes. Enjoy the video!
One of my favorite cereals growing up was Lucky Charms, and when I was a kid I would always make sure each bite I took was filled with Marshmallows. I was always getting yelled at by my parents for not eating the healthy part of the cereal, but those dehydrated mallows were so damn good!
Now you can actually buy a box of marshmallow-only cereal! How ridiculous and awesome is that!? It’s called Marshmallow Madness, and you can by it online. There are 16 oz boxes for $22, bags for $11 and a 40 lb case for $164!
That’s expensive! I’ll just stick to spending $4 on a box of Lucky Charms and picking the marshmallows out.

Ali Jalali is a CG sculpture and character artist who created this dark and eerie version of Batman as a zombie. He appropriately calls the piece The Undead Rises and it looks terrifying. The piece was created for a Comic-Con 2016 challenge in which artists were tasked with turning superheroes into zombies. I also included a great piece created by artist Anna Lakisova for the challenge that features Catwoman as a zombie as well.
Screen Gems has released a very brief promo spot for Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Apparently, this will be the last film in the long-running franchise. The teaser is basically promoting the release date of a full trailer coming on Tuesday, August 9th. Even though it's brief, it still offers us our first footage from the film and it features Milla Jovovich as Alice riding a motorcycle into a hail of gunfire and explosions. It's a pretty cool little shot! I also included a photo released by EW.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity's final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella's impending attack, this will be Alice's most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
The movie also stars Ali Larter as Claire Redfield, Iain Glen as Dr. Alexander Isaacs, Shawn Roberts as Albert Wesker, Ruby Rose as Abigail, Eoin Macken as Doc, William Levy as Christian, Fraser James as Michael, and Japanese model Rola, as Cobalt.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be released in January 2017.
I’ve got a couple of Japanese commercials here for you to watch created for Nissan Foods Ramen Noodles. These are the most badass Ramen commercials you’ll ever see. The commercials are being released as a way to celebrate the company’s 58th anniversary and they will apparently be rolling out a series of these commercials.
The first commercial is called "The Originator." It’s awesomely animated and features Ramen-creator Momofuku Ando as a samurai warrior and it gives us the origin story of ramen. The second one is called “Instant Buzz” and it’s wildly strange. It centers on a schoolgirl who dresses up as a Samurai and goes chasing after a flying drone after it flew into her home and stole her Ramen. It starts pretty normal but then escalates into absolute craziness.
For some reason, I’ve found myself buying more and more geek-inspired backpacks recently. I just come across so many that I like that I have to buy them! They’ve definitely come in handy with all the conventions I attend throughout the year and all the traveling I do. Now I’ve got a new one that I’ve got to get! This is the Marvel x MadPax Spider-Man Backpack. It is available through ThinkGeek and it comes with the following description:
Spider-Man is our kind of superhero. Nerdy, shy, a little bit awkward, but great with gadgets, and fighting the good fight. Fortunately, you don't have to come in contact with a radioactive arachnid (or even a spider of any kind) to pay tribute to Peter Parker with this Spider-Man backpack.
This Marvel x MadPax Spiderman Backpack holds everything required for your secret identity, like your Daily Bugle badge, your camera, and your tablet for taking notes. You can throw whatever you need in here, which is useful because there aren't pockets in Spidey's costume (unless it's Rob Liefeld's Spidey, but we're going to just pretend like that didn't happen). Hey, look! A backpack!
The backpack can be purchased here for $84.99.
Sometimes the people who come up with ideas for tie-in movie toys and consumer products have some pretty crazy brain farts. SreenRant has released a video that points out ten crazy toys and other consumer products that are ridiculously inappropriate and some of them are pretty damn funny. Some of the products on the list include the Jar-Jar Lollipop, RoboCop Board Game, Harry Potter Vibrating Broom, C-3PO Tape Dispenser, Buzz Lightyear Sippy Cup, and more. Here’s the description that came along with the video:
Studios are constantly looking for ways to maximize the profits of a popular film property, and one of the most common routes they take is licensing tie-in merchandise. This allows fans to take a part of the movie home with them, even when it’s playing in theaters. While some items – like the ever-expanding collection of Star Wars action figures – are a no-brainer, not every piece of memorabilia is as great as it sounds on paper. Over the years, there have been some yebrow raising products that stirred up plenty of controversy, and once you watch this video, you’ll be able to understand why
Prime 1 Studios has released the first official photos and details of their Batman statue based on Mark Millar’s comic The Dark Knight Returns. This is probably the most badass statue I’ve seen of Batman! It stands at 33” tall and it is priced at $969. There are no details on when it will be available for order yet.
It will comes with two interchangeable heads, several hands that you can switch up, and it features as assorted arsenal of weapons. There’s also an exclusive version of the statue that will include an additional interchangeable head sculpt as well as an additional hand holding multiple Batarangs.
Here’s the description:
MMDC-17 DARK KNIGHT RETURNS BATMAN
“You don’t get it boy… this isn’t a mudhole… its an operating table. (KRAKKKKK) And I’m the surgeon.”
Prime 1 Studio is proud to present to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most influential stories ever told in the comics medium of the undisputed graphic novel masterpiece MMDC-17 BATMAN:THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS.
Frank Miller completely reinvents the legend of Batman in this saga of a near-future Gotham City gone to rot,10 years after the Dark Knight’s retirement. Forced to take action, the Dark Knight returns in a blaze of fury, taking on a whole new generation of criminals and matching their level of violence. He is soon joined by a new Robin girl named Carrie Kelley, who proves to be just as invaluable as her predecessors.
But can Batman and Robin deal with the threat posed by their deadliest enemies,
after years of incarceration have turned them into perfect psychopaths? And more important, can anyone survive the coming fallout from an undeclared war between the superpowers or the clash of what were once the world’s greatest heroes?

If you’re a fan of director Steven Spielberg, you’ve got to watch this rare 1983 Japanese documentary! I happened to see a link to AICN on my Facebook feed for this hour-long doc and it’s one of the coolest and most interesting things I’ve seen on the internet this week.
The doc gives us a look at Spielberg’s early directing career, shortly after he made Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. The year the doc was shot, the director was working on The Twilight Zone Movie.
Spielberg allows the documentary crew to tour his home, offices, and they were even allowed on the set of The Twilight Zone. The doc also gives you a look at a personal, candid side of Spielberg that many people probably haven’t seen before. It’s a very intimate look at the legendary filmmaker as he’s still in the early stages of finding success in his early career.
It’s a completely fascinating video to watch, and you’ve gotta check it out when you get a chance!
This real life minifig-inspired cosplay is stupidly terrifying. It’s just so wrong on so many levels, but it’s also so right! It comes from Tested and it’s the stuff that nightmares are made of. The creators of it are calling it creepyfig, which is very fitting.
Our latest project with Frank Ippolito lives at the intersection of creepy and amazing. For this year’s Comic-Con, Frank designed, sculpted, and painted LEGO-inspired mask, made to look like a real-life version of a minifig. We’re calling it the creeppyfig, and it found its way home wandering through Comic-Con’s exhibit hall.
